With patent lawsuits flying back and forth between Apple and Samsung, it was probably only a matter of time until Cupertino reduced its reliance on components from the Korean manufacturer — and that day seems to have arrived with the iPhone 6.
Summer is halfway over now, which means we're getting closer to finding out what the iPhone 6 will really look like — but one thing's for sure, it's going to have Touch ID, which will be tweaked slightly from the current version.
Apple chose to pass on the opportunity to incorporate Touch ID fingerprint sensors into the latest iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display models, but a new rumor suggests that oversight may get rectified later this year.
Like many brand-new Apple products, owners of the latest MacBook Air models are finding the notebook's 802.11ac Wi-Fi a bit finicky, with reports of dropped connections last week and now a software bug in OS X that appears to be causing slower file transfers. But take heart: Cupertino usually gets all of these issues fixed sooner rather than later...
According to a new report, Apple may be looking to remove the “friend” portion of their “frenemy” relationship with Samsung, as Taiwan’s TSMC has begin trial manufacturing for the company’s next-generation A6 mobile chips. But will Cupertino choose to completely turn their back on Samsung?
Earlier this year Apple moved past Sony to become Samsung's biggest customer. However, the relationship status moved to "it's complicated" when Apple began a series of accusations and lawsuits against Samsung for allegedly copying the iPhone and iPad. Now it appears Apple has started seeing other people, and is actively sourcing a new manufacturer to produce the A6 processor beginning in 2012.
